This Countryside Chateau dates from the 12th century, the heyday of this region when the front line between the French and the English battalions lay right here during the 100-year war. In 1204, then Pope Clement de IV even spent a few nights here! The picturesque bastide towns and many castles also date from that time. The region is also called the Tuscany of France; with a romantic rolling landscape with rich nature. There are various fantastic routes for hiking and MTB straight from our terrains. It is the region of the good life, with "summer" from spring to autumn, no less than 13 AOC wines and the organic/bio region of France.

The buildings of the Chateau are set around a private courtyard with herb garden where you can enjoy the last sunshine until late evening. The castle is surrounded by a large park garden with swimming pool and various terraces. The driveway with impressive old plane trees brings you under the tower. The atmosphere of earlier centuries is still present everywhere, gaps, thick walls, high chic spaces, the tower with a magnificent view.

With respect for history and nature, we have renovated our castle as comfortable as possible for our guests; from swimming pool to our own mini cinema. We organize special once-in-a-lifetime celebrations for up to 120 people.

Location

Ah, Nouvelle-Aquitaine! Home to Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes. This is quite possibly the ideal wedding destination for any happy couple.

Aquitaine is home to Bordeaux and it is more than possible for you to get married near to the breath-taking Dordogne, or even near the Basque Villages. This is along the Spanish border and there is so much for you to see and do. The hot springs that are in Nouvelle-Aquitaine are not to be missed and this is great if you want to pamper yourself after the big day. Poitou-Charentes is on the Atlantic Coast and the sandy white beaches are culturally stimulating. Famous for its beautiful architecture as well as its incredible food and wine, This region has it all. Castles from yesteryear adorn every hilltop and the region is a must for anyone who enjoys their food. Local specilaities include truffles, foie gras, prunes and of course wine.

Of course, you also have the Marias Poitevan wetlands, and this is not to be missed either. You can get to this area via train and flights also run to this area as well. This is easily one of the most beautiful areas in the whole of France and the activities there include horse riding, wine-tasting and relaxing on some of the sandy shores. The region features many destinations with cultural and touristic significance locations like the Citadel of Blaye, Saint-Emilion, La Rochelle, Aquarium, Arcachon and the Dune du Pilat. All of these areas have a rich historical background that could be considered when choosing wedding venues in the region. Nothing can quite compare to the experience you will get when you visit this location, and it is one of the best places for you to say those special words, “I Do!”.

Reviews

  • Idyllic spot in the hills of the wine country. Staying at the Chateau really feels like living in a medieval castle, with its characteristic interiors, but with modern facilities :)
    We hiked through the surroundings, visited nearby local markets and enjoyed the pool at the chateau.
    The hosts, Jaap and Rachna, do their absolute best to make it an eco-friendly place and are full of tips for things to do. But the chateau is also just a really wonderful place to relax.
    Will definitely visit again!

  • What a beautiful accommodation in a real castle! You stay here in one of the castle rooms overlooking the beautiful French area on one side and the 'courtyard' of the residence on the other side. Because of the peace and quiet you will sleep well! There are luxury wine regions and houses to discover nearby and villages with good restaurants can be found nearby. The managers are friendly and know a lot about the castle and the area, they are super hosts! We are planning to go back here with family.
